's lead. the time has come. today president obama unveiled his vision for immigration reform. his vision for a nation that gives people the rights they deserve. that's what the election was all about. that's what the president promised in his inaugural address. that's why millions of americans said se on election day. the truth is immigrant rights are civil rights. this is not an issue that should divide us. and the president made that point today. >> it's easy sometimes for the discussion to take on a feeling of us versus them. and when that happens, a lot of folks forget that most of us used to be them. we forget that. [ applause ] >> it's important for us to remember our history. unless you're one of the first americans you came from some place else. somebody brought you. >> you came from some place else. somebody brought you here. that's the american story. that's what this debate has been about. >> all those folks before they were us, they were them. and when each new wave of immigrants arrived, they faced resistance from those who were already here. they faced hardship. they faced
between she and president obama. how important would it be to get immigration reform done and then set the table for her to take on another big issue in this country? which of course could be health care, which of course could be women's rights. >> absolutely. and the health care plan we have right now is a lot closer to the one she proposed during the campaign because barack obama was against the individual mandate and she was for it. but yeah, on immigration, if immigration reform were to get done, i think republicans are even starting to realize this, it would redound mostly to the benefit of democrats. latinos are trending toward the democratic party on most issues. i think it would help republicans only marginally and democrats a lot more. it would get that issue off the table. if she were to run, which a lot of people think she will, i think she will, she is going to have a lot of successes in the previous administration to kind of push off and run. >> joy reid, great to have you on "the ed show." thank you. >> good to be here. >> a lot more coming up in the next half hour of the
, 380 times they did it to obstruct president obama's agenda, and senate democrats i think are sick of this. senator tom harkin of iowa said on my radio show today without meaningful filibuster reform, it could be a rough second term for president obama. >> i said to obama one time we were in iowa, the night before the election, he was in iowa, the night before the election, i said to him, i said, look, i want some of your time after the election. he said sure, what about? filibuster. i said you get reelected, if you get reelected and we don't change the filibuster rules in the senate, you might as well take a four-year vacation, because you won't get anything done. >> senator harkin also told me about the so-called 41 rule that would require 41 republicans to vote in order to maintain a filibuster instead of requiring the majority party to find 60 votes to break one. folks, 60 votes, it isn't going to happen in the senate. not in this political climate. senator reid had included the 41 rule in his proposal, but politico reported late tonight he dropped the rule after talks with mcc
way. >> jimmy, i think -- i know mr. obama is sitting high, though he got whacked by the federal court today but i think democrats can be pretty stupid, too. if they reject entitlement reform, if they say we're just going to raise taxes like this budget deal, just taxes and no spending, if they don't deal with federal debt and they don't deal with the economic growth problem, then the democrats are going to be stupid and they're going to give away what advantage they have now. >> charlie cook wrote a really great column today about this issue in 2016 it will still be about the economy, stupid, right? here's the problem. the republicans, you just said bill clinton and ronald reagan. i appreciate that. you also described a dead white man and a nearly dead white man. the republican party has got to get off this issue of only appealing to white men and women over 50. the country is changing and it's changing rapidly. >> in fairness we're having a conversation about bobby jindal -- >> but you dismissed him as a serious presidential candidate. >> i didn't dismiss him. i said his tactic was d
